Never been camping? Not sure how to get started? The Parks Canada Learn-to Camp team is here to help!

Our program prepares you with the knowledge and skills you need to feel confident planning and going on your first camping adventure. We typically offer three ways that you can get your first taste of camping.

If you are interested in booking any of these options for your organization, please contact us via the email provided below.

Learn-to Camp Pop-Up Booths (Free)

Free drop-in sessions at community locations in the Greater Toronto Area – and find us at various trailheads throughout Rouge National Urban Park!  We can briefly introduce you to Parks Canada and camping in the great outdoors, and provide information on outdoor safety.



 
Learn-to Camp Workshops (Free)

Our team delivers workshops to help your audiences on their first frontcountry camping adventure! Topics covered include wildlife awareness, campfire technique, and equipment recommendations.

This year, we have free in-person workshops available to the public. Please contact the Host Organization directly for further details. Some may require registration.

 Learn-to Camp Overnight Experiences - Cancelled 

All Learn-to Camp Overnight programs have been cancelled for 2022. We look forward to camping safely together in the future!
